Normally I'd have lots of time for planning and research but for various reasons, it looks like the 2 week holiday needs to take place mid June and be booked asap. So, for that reason I'm hoping someone could give me some pointers. I have done a quick enough check for travelling to Santorini mid June from Dublin, but most packages, searches are coming up with 2/3 stops to get there and over €2,000 pp for 7 nights only! Could anyone recommend how they did the trip recently? ie. via UK and then direct to Santorini and if you booked independently? The other options I'm looking at is Aer Lingus to Athens, then ferry or another flight but I'd say this means a stopover in Athens? That may not be a bad thing. The other option I've looked into is the new flight by Ryanair from Dublin to Chania, Crete, possibly staying there for few nights, and taking fastcat ferry by 1.5 hours to Santorini. and returning via another island and possibly via UK as there seems to be much more direct island flights. We have 2 weeks and would like to spend 1 week in Santorini and 1 week or most of it on another island, within reasonable distance (few hours on ferry) from Santorini. Any previous experiences of this sort of trip from Ireland very welcome. We usually travel independently but open to package if its easier or better value (but also cant find dual centre package - again if anyone knows travel agent in Ireland who does Greek islands well, much obliged for tips).
